I’m so excited and honored to be working with a good friend of mine, Kelly Wilson, and her company Weave Gotcha Covered!
I’ve always found Kelly to be very inspiring and I love what her business is creating! Weave Gotcha Covered is a Kansas City based interior design company that focuses on 100% customer satisfaction, producing custom window treatments, bedding, and upholstery. WGC is a social entrepreneurship. Many of their employees come from programs designed to give women/mothers a chance to improve their lives. She is partnering with Amethyst Place and their program 100 Jobs for 100 women. Kelly is passionate about providing these women with the mentoring and support they need to improve their self image and be successful. Work is under way to bring back the garment district to Kansas City. Consequently, jobs will become available for people with sewing skills. WGC is building a sewing lab in the back of their shop to teach women how to sew, making them eligible for this work. If anyone has a sewing machine that can be donated to their cause, please contact Weave Gotcha Covered.
There’s been a lot of exciting energy around the shop the last few months, because they have been recognized for all their hard work. Weave Gotcha Covered has been honored as one of Thinking Bigger Business Media’s 2016 25 under 25 AND the greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Top 10 Small Businesses of 2016! If you’re in the KC metro, you may recognize them from one of the media reports documenting these awards.
I’m also excited to be working with them, because I have always liked Kelly and what she values: creativity, possibility, thinking outside of the box, simply natural values, and just basic common sense. Her company has become quite an inspiration for the local community, which she is committed to serving. Another value we have in common is that Kelly and WGC do whatever they can to keep it local and support the local economy. Consequently, I’m sub-contracting with Weave Gotcha Covered using my big machine to produce custom made bedspreads and comforters for their customers! I recently kicked off the deal by creating two quilted sample books of all the patterns that I’m offering. I had fun piecing and quilting both of our shop’s logos for the covers. The following photos show the two identical books completed, except for the large rings holding it all together.
I can’t wait to see what becomes of this!
